Poem: Desire

By: Shailendra Chauhan
Translated By: Balkrishna Kabra ‘Etesh’

Red Sun

I left behind
I adopted silence
No talks

I walked
Behind them
For sometime
Who misled me

Later I found myself
In the other direction
I bowed down
To the red Sun

To get love
Was the desire
And the love was showered
By your both hands

I sang throughout my life
What I learned from you
What I got from you
